July 8

Sunday, July 08, 2012

Feeling very mellow today. I think this is going to be one of those days where napping away the day is a great option *grin*

The girls and I had a great time at the farmers market in St. Albert yesterday. What a fabulous market to go to. Apparently it is the largest one in Western Canada. I didn't buy much, but it was so much fun wandering and looking. We will definitely take in the market again.

The girls came over for the evening and I drove them home at around 11pm last night. We had a beautiful day in the weather department and because I spent almost all day outdoors, the sun and warm temperatures have left me on the tired side this morning. We are in for another great day in the weather department, so while the work is still mostly sleeping, I will take some time and spend it in meditation on the back deck. Perfect day for communing with my Creator.

My positives:
Life.
My family.
Health.
All the blessings that recognize and all the blessings that inadvertently miss.

Have a wonderful day, fill your heart with gratefulness.

Hugs,
Wanda

Yay, sunshine!

Saturday, July 07, 2012

We finally had a summer day yesterday, no rain, just sunshine!
This morning, the sun is shining once again and it promises to be a warm one.

The girls are picking me up this morning and we are heading out to St. Albert to take in the their large farmer's market. I will have to remember to wear my sunglasses as it is so nice and bright outside.

Our neighbors came over last night and we sat out on the front deck until midnight visiting. Well past my usual bedtime. It was such a lovely evening.

My positives:
The sun is shining.
Spending time with my girls today.
Great neighbors.
Blessed with a new day of life.
Life, love and laughter in my life.

Have a wonderful fun filled day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Rain , rain, go away!

Friday, July 06, 2012

The day started off nicely yesterday, but within an hour of me getting home from work, the weather had turned once again. It rained so hard that the streets were like rivers. Today is a new day though...the sun is shining!

My day off work today and I hope to get out to the garden to do some weeding. I plan on spending some time today with my Pintrest boards and checking out all the things that I have pinned. Do some clean-up there and copy some of the recipes into my recipe binders etc.

Tomorrow, the girls and I are heading to St. Albert to check out the huge farmer's market that is held there each Saturday and then possibly check out some of the Heritage Days things happening in Edmonton. I hope to get lots of steps in tomorrow without over stressing my knee.

My positives:
The sun is shining this morning, I'm not working so I can enjoy it.
Family time with the girls this weekend.
Being alive to enjoy whatever the day has to offer.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs
Wanda

    I wish I could send you some of my sun. It is going to be 42 by this afternoon. Already 31 at 10:00 a.m. Hope the sun keeps on shining and you get to your garden. Have a great day!

Another day of being the best I can be!

Thursday, July 05, 2012

I am so grateful that our sump pumps are working well and we are not experiencing any flooding. This weather has been wrecking havoc through out the province. It seems like no matter where you live in the province there is damage from the weather. Flooding, tornado touch downs, high winds and lots of rain. The skies are clear this morning for the first time in a few days and there is no wind...the silence is almost scary! Even the birds are quiet this morning.
Almost like waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Yesterday was a great day for getting in all my steps plus some. I forgot about tracking my food, not sure what happened there. Going back over what I consumed yesterday though, not as healthy as it could have been, but not so bad either. I did get my water in and I did not snack after 6pm. All in all an alright day.

I hope to get out to the garden today after work to survey any damage from the weather, now that it has stopped raining and blowing. From what I can see, things look not too bad. My flowers are still on the potato plants so that is a good sign. With the kind of weather that we have been having, my potatoes might be the only thing that really does well this year. We badly need some sunshine and heat.

Today I am choosing to be all that I can be. I am choosing to make wise choices in nutrition and to drink my water. I am choosing to rest my body as it requires and I am choosing to have a positive attitude.

My positives:
Being alive to enjoy what the day holds for me.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

The wind can stop anytime now!

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

Winds started yesterday as a breeze and have built themselves up to 80km an hour. I'm not sure how flattened out some of my potato plants are at this point. The ones in the pots are probably ok, but the ones in the garden beds are more vulnerable. At least I still have leaves on the tress and hopefully my tiny little apples that were forming.
We are supposed to have this weather (rain and wind) for most of the day and clearing by tonight, then head into plus 30 weather and another big storm on it's way for early next week. On the plus side...it's not snow!

I'm working my way back into a proper routine once again. If nothing else, going back to work helps with that *grin*. I did meet my goal for yesterday and got in 10,000 plus steps. I find that harder to do when I'm at home, as I spend so much time outside in the garden. Not exactly a walking chore, but exercise none the less.

My positives:
No snow! Just cold temperatures and 80km winds!
Getting back into a routine of walking.
Slowly but surely marking things off the to-do list. Almost ready to tackle the next big project...getting my pictures organized!
Blessed with life, love and my choice.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    WOW, you are having weird weather. It is still hot and humid here. I love working for my steps too. I am estimating them at 4 or 4.5 miles as that is what I was doing last week. My fitbit is already on its way, woohoo. Hope you have a great day and don't blow away, hee hee.
